Avatar f tn I had my Nissen done on 10/18/10. For the most part, my recovery has gone very smoothly. I can eat pretty much anything now without trouble, my symptoms are gone, and overall I feel pretty good. However, I'm still slowly losing weight. I expected the immediate weight loss that I had in the first week or so because of the liquid/soft diet, but I'm still losing about a half a pound a week. I eat what I feel are normal portions, and I eat until I feel full.
Avatar f tn Losing 10 pounds by Sept 23 is not a reasonable goal, as that's too much weight to lose in such a short time. Most likely the reason you can't stick with a "diet" is because you're cutting your calorie intake too severely. Nobody can stick to a diet in which they don't provide enough food. If you provide adequate calories of healthy foods, chances are you won't have any trouble losing the weight and keeping it off.
Avatar n tn First, if you're at all muscular, you're not all that overweight. If you're not muscular, you don't need to lose a ton of weight. Calories aren't key to losing weight -- how quickly and efficiently you metabolize your food into sugar and how well you digest your nutrients is far more important.
Avatar f tn I have a dear friend that has lost over 150 lbs on the Isagenix program plus has regained her health ,too. Together my husband and I have lost over forty pounds but the most important thing is we feel alive again! My husband couldn't sleep at night and walked bent over like an old man and we didn't even have any grandchildren yet! I felt like I wanted to nap all day! It truly has blessed our lives and was an answer to our prayers when our friend introduced us to it.
Avatar f tn Losing 40 pounds in 2 months is pretty much not going to happen, even if you starve. You need to stop and think about what you're doing. Losing weight by any means, other than healthy lifestyle changes will only temporary and will actually put more stress on your heart than it's under now. If you want healthy weight loss tips, we'll be glad to walk down that road with you.

Avatar f tn We need for you to post your thyroid test results and their reference ranges shown on the lab report.
Avatar f tn chart can possibly tell me i am under weight or over weight. My sister had a 3 month looking belly at 9 months and baby weighed 7 lbs. If u listen to everything these american doc say then u will go nuts. ( just my opinion btw) they told me i was over weight according to my height etc..mind u, i had a flat stomach, nice "***" big breast etc ( i am from d island) but according to their bmi chart i was over weight.
Avatar f tn I I am 20 weeks today and I have lost 23 lbs so far. I am actually at the dr now so we will see if I have gained any back maintained or lost weight again. Dr isn't worried all the ultrasounds have shown baby is big.
Avatar f tn Yes it's normal to lose weight while pregnant. I lost weight the first trimester and my doctor didn't worry as long as baby is growing. Just eat healthy and stay active! !
1110747 tn?1295844043 I am over weight and I'm TTC. However I'm trying to lose some weight before I become pregnant. Is it safe to take Alli to help lose weight while TTC or when I become pregnant?
Avatar n tn You don't really need to gain if you were over weight when the pregnancy started. Eat healthy meals, normal portions, exercise moderately. You may lose weight naturally as baby takes up some of the excess calories you were consuming. I'd consider yourself weight neutral right now and just eat healthy with proper portion control and not worry about the end result of your weight.
Avatar f tn I was 160 when I found out I was pregnant now at ten weeks I am down to 140. my nausea is horrible and i was vomiting a lot up until last week but it doesn't make sense to me because I haven't thrown up in over a week and have been eating good but I'm still losing weight! Did this happen to anyone else? Should I be concerned?
Avatar f tn My doctor wants me to loose weight but its cause I am over weight. I lost 3 ponds but gained it all back plus more. So it depends if you are healthy then you shouldn't loose weight.
Avatar f tn Diet aids such as Releana are not the best way to lose weight. While you might lose a considerable amount of weight on it, which might be nice, the chances of gaining it all back, once you go off the med are extremely high. I can't think of anyone I've ever known, who would stick to such a "diet" for any length of time.
Avatar n tn I'm trying to join the air force but I'm 10lbs over the limit. To lose weight I started doing 2 hours of cardio one in the morning one at night. At first I started losing but after 2 week I'm gaining what cardio should I do to lose weight without muscles?
Avatar f tn Is it normal that I've lost like 10 to 12 pounds since my pregnancy I'm 15 weeks pregnant. I mean don't get me wrong I like the idea of losing weight instead of gaining it. But still concerned about my baby.
Avatar f tn Hey, Im the same age and height as you and so is my best friend. She weighed 84 just over a year ago and now weighs 69. She doesnt exercise much a part from walking the dog but she eats super healthy. Its all about how much you consume and what you are consuming. I started the same healthy eating as she did and have so far lost 3kgs. My current weight is 74 and I want to be 68. For breakfast I have oats or boiled egg, lunch I have a protein and salad and dinner I have a protein and veggies.

Twenty to forty percent over ideal weight is considered mildly obese; 40-100% over ideal weight is considered moderately obese; and 100% over ideal weight is considered severely, or morbidly, obese.
